Drivers visiting western Marin County this week should make sure
they have plenty of gasoline as damage to a Point Reyes Station gas station
has left the area with few places to refuel, the California Highway Patrol
A vehicle collision at the Greenbridge Gas & Auto Service station
at 11401 state Highway 1 in Point Reyes Station has caused major damage that
disabled all gas pumps, according to CHP Officer Daniel Hill.
The gas pumps will take 4 to 6 days to fix, leaving the Marin
County coast area with only one gas station in Bolinas.
The next closest gas
station on the coast is in Bodega Bay, around 45 miles apart, Hill said.
Drivers can also expect delays due to increased calls for roadside
assistance as other drivers run out of gas.
"We are encouraging the public to plan ahead and venture out only
with a full tank of gas, when possible," Hill said.
